Local RAVEN sightings

A couple of Raven sightings in the region this week: A pair was spotted over Ravensburgh Bank (very apt) on Tuesday 28th Feb, then another pair again on Thursday 1st March at Houghton Regis Quarry. The Wildlife Trust recently took over management of Houghton Regis Quarry to manage it as a nature reserve; as the appointed warden for the site I was particularly pleased about this latter observation (Rebecca Pitman)
